Abstract

Both conditions succeed each other in the chronicles of our time and every day, more or less consciously, they are experienced by everyone in his social life. However in our “radical modernity”, one can ask if the line between confidence and fear is indisputably clear. Or are they instead emotions ambiguously linked? In societies characterized by the meeting of several cultures often we see the fear of the unknown, fear of difference, fear of the other. Is it possible to defuse tensions and conflicts that all these fears feed? These questions are the subject of essays, collected by Paola de Cuzzani (Bergen-Norway) and Mirella Pasini and written by a group of European researchers (from Italy, France, Lithuania and Norway) engaged in long reflection on the evolution of cultural attitudes, on social and public ethics, on social behaviors, in the modern and contemporary age, From trust to fear and from fear to trust: fragments of a dialogue between languages, cultures and societies, written to construct a new theoretical path, able to become a social proposal in aim to develop inclusion, integration, dialogue in contemporary European societies. The book has been published in Italian, French, English, by support of the L.Meltzers Høyskolefond – Norway. M.Pasini wrote the Introduction and the essay “Dalla fiducia alla paura e ritorno: un percorso di analisi della vita quotidiana”.
